the cease-fire because israel's response was quick. they fired warning shots at the palestinians, in the end they ended up killing one of the forces. palestinians are going to be protesting that to the united nations. but at the same time hamas also responded quickly. today they're keeping protesters away from the fence. they don't want any more of these kinds of clashes with israelis see as provocations. so i think it's clear both sides do want the cease-fire to continue. they both have a very strong vested interest in doing so. and that kind of incident yesterday, which led to the unfortunate death of one palestinian, i doubt that will be repeated in the days to come. the emphasis on both sides is going to be on the next stage, which as you mentioned, which is outlining the details, dealing with the details of what the cease-fire is, what it leads to. what they've got so far is what they've called quiet for quiet. both sides not shooting. what's next is the beginning of the negotiations. it's quite clear what the two sides want although it's going to appear complicated. it's simple and it'

deadly violence in the middle east overnight between israel and hamas. nbc chief foreign correspondent richard engel is in gaza this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt, it is not a good time to be a hamas military leader on the strip. they are being systematically picked off, killed in their homes, in cars, on motorcycles, many have gone into hiding, turning off cell phones, avoiding all usual locations. israel's war to stop hamas' rockets continued. with 100 strikes in the air and from the sea. hamas is still able to launch homemade, iranian made rockets towards southern israel and tel aviv. there were around 40 new launches today. not all are hitting their mark because in israel there's a new national hero, the mobile iron dome defense system, proving to be the most effective of its kind in the world. of the thousand rockets israel says hamas fired in the last six days, about a third have been intercepted by the iron dome. in gaza, there are no air defenses at all, and israel appears to have superb intelligence, locating and destroying individual hamas home
